Norway’s Progress Party (FRP) wants to cut taxes on beer, wine, strong beer, and snuff in Norway down to the Swedish level. At the same time, the party wants to remove the tax on chocolate and sugar products and non-alcoholic beverages.
The proposals appeared in the Progress Party’s alternative budget, which was presented on Monday.
“FRP takes most people and the Norwegian economy seriously. Therefore, we propose a border trade package that would bring the taxes on typical border trade goods down to the Swedish level,” Sylvi Listhaug said.
“That means cutting the alcohol taxes on beer, wine, and strong beer, cutting the tax on snuff, removing the tax on chocolate and confectionery, removing the tax on non-alcoholic beverages, and removing the basic tax on disposable packaging,” she added.
